Forgotten Cello Music

Forgotten Cello Music

By AARON S.

All things cello music. Your place to discover more cello music than you or your cello teacher ever thought existed. There are thousands and thousands of works for cello. I also have a Youtube channel devoted to recording sets of "Forgotten Cello Music". I largely omit the famous composers to focus in on the likes of Klengel, Goltermann, S. Lee, Noelck, Romberg, Cervetto, Schetky, and many other names you have never heard before.

This podcast was born out of the desire to have a podcast. No joke! :) I have wanted to make a podcast for years. My passion is Classical music brought to you.

57. Overview: GERMANY in the 19th Century
57. Overview: GERMANY in the 19th Century
57. Overview: GERMANY in the 19th Century Wasielewski says in the introduction to "Germany in the 19th C." that this country produced a good many cellists whose names are still well-known to this day. The Cellist on whom the title, Father of the German school of Cello Playing, was bestowed is Bernhard Romberg. As he straddled the 18th and 19th centuries and had such influence on cello technique and composition, he is a deserving candidate at the very least.  You will hear a basic overview of what cello playing looked like according to The Violoncello and Its History and the mention of several dozen names. There will also be some talk of my own experience in playing music from this group of cellist/composers.  ______________ The music you hear in this episode is the following and mostly in this order: James Hook -- Cello Duet Op. 58 No. 4, I. Un poco allegro            Aaron Sinnett, Cello 1 & 2 Georg Goltermann -- German Dances , Op. 42            Aaron Sinnett, Cello;  Rio Li, Piano Georg Golterman  -- Nocturne, Op. 54            Aaron Sinnett, Cello; Dale Sinnett, Piano Georg Golterman -- Grand Duo, Op. 15 in D minor, I. Allegro           Aaron Sinnett, Cello;  MIDI, Piano (I entered all the notes into Musescore!) {Does that make me the pianist?} Here's to a new year! ---------- Thank you to my Patrons over on Patreon!

55. Quarenghi: "Capriccio" for Cello and Piano
55. Quarenghi: "Capriccio" for Cello and Piano I said I'd learn and play this piece for the podcast. Well, I learned the entire thing but it was challenging. It was fun. However, sometimes you are unable to make the fingers move properly due to inactivity as a performer. For that reason, you'll hear excerpts. If anybody else has ever heard or even played this number for yourself I would like to hear about. (If you have a recording wouldn't that be fun to hear?)

54. Quarenghi and Counterpoint: FUGUE
54. Quarenghi and Counterpoint: FUGUE
Episode 54 is Part 4 and the final installment in my exploration into Counterpoint.  It started simply due to an accident. Upon finding and perusing through Guglielmo Quarenghi's 600 page cello method, there in the middle was a complete study on counterpoint. Included were original compositions of his own exemplifying 5 Species of Counterpoint, Imitation, Canon, and Fugue. I was hooked because of the singularity of the inclusion. This was also indicative of the lack of attention paid to counterpoint especially in relation to Bach's music and how central a role it plays in a cellists upbringing.  What are your own thoughts on learning Bach's suites for cello or any other composition? Is it necessary to learn counterpoint to be an informed player or is it more of an issue of adding to the palette? (Or would you phrase it differently?) -------- I hope you are enjoying the podcast. It would be splendid to get some more feedback. Thanks to the few who have sent a message. It is very nice to hear from listeners. --------- Consider joining me on Patreon at the $3/mo. tier.

51. Guglielmo Quarenghi: Introduction and COUNTERPOINT installment #1 The Five Species
51. Guglielmo Quarenghi: Introduction and COUNTERPOINT installment #1 The Five Species
Quarenghi was a cellist, composer, and pedagogue (an author, too) from Italy in the 19th C. This episode features a biographical sketch about him from The Violoncello and Its History and Counterpoint. I introduce him and the Five Species of Counterpoint. All together I am planning 5 episodes (shorter in scope) that cover Quarenghi and his dealing with Counterpoint in the cello method.  They are:  Counterpoint: the Five Species Counterpoint: Imitation Counterpoint: Canon Counterpoint: Fugue Capriccio for cello and piano Quarenghi seems to have been an interesting character at least in so far as he wrote an enormous Cello Method--about 500 pages--and provided ALL musical examples from his own creative output, i.e, he composed them. But what's more is that he included an entire section on counterpoint, which I never recall seeing in a cello method before. This inclusion is certainly no after thought, signifying the importance of the old form that masters such as Palestrina, Gabrieli, and Bach cultivated to the highest degree.  If you wish to read more my blog post focuses on this topic of  counterpoint giving an overview of the forms Quarenghi showcases in Part the Third, Section 2 of his cello method. http://travelingcellojourney.com/2022/09/08/counterpoint-canon/ To watch me perform several of the forms including the 5 Species click her for my youtube channel.  Thanks for listening.

50. A Milestone Episode! "LIED OHNE WORTE" or Song Without Words for Cello Duet
50. A Milestone Episode! "LIED OHNE WORTE" or Song Without Words for Cello Duet
EPISODE 50 This is great! I am so happy that I have made all the way to 50 episodes. It has been 2 ½ years of episodic regularity with periods of uploading drought. Thanks for joining me on this journey of Forgotten Cello Music, where I have forged ahead with a unique project of featuring unknown cello music, or at the very least, neglected music.  This milestone of 50 episodes is reason to for the excuse to feature a piece music which I would consider neglected, although, the composer is far from neglected. I mean, Felix Mendelssohn. He wrote the piece featured in this episode, which he entitled Lied Ohne Worte, op. 109. It is an original composition for Cello and Piano, along with three other originals.  From time to time, I arrange certain works that are particularly interesting to me or that lend themselves well to arrangement for cello duet. I have done just that for "Song Without Words", op. 109. I am quite happy with the result and I am confident you will find some enjoyment in it.  Please join me for this episode. Thanks for listening and send messages or emails if you have any comments.

49. ITALY in the 19th Century: Ferdinando RONCHINI, from "The Violoncello and Its History"
49. ITALY in the 19th Century: Ferdinando RONCHINI, from "The Violoncello and Its History"
Episode 49. ITALY in the 19th Century: Ferdinando RONCHINI, from  "The Violoncello and Its History" First, apologies for the lengthy introduction to this episode. I felt it was necessary to explain why I have been largely absent from podcasting for the past few months--not the least of which is during summer time when family takes a more prominent position. Also, to shamelessly plug my social media (also very sparse uploads during the summer months) and invite you to take part in supporting AND getting excellent Forgotten Cello Music merch in return for your donations! This installment sees a turning back to earlier formats (minus the long introduction). The focus is mainly on one composer/cellist named Ferdinando Ronchini. He is not a known cellist/composer to me, however, after looking at his list of arrangements, I noticed that I actually own a published copy of some Debussy transcriptions of his. So, I have seen his name but not conscientiously.  There is a bit of an intro to the Italian section to lay the ground work for the world in which Ronchini was living. Now, he was apparently a pretty decent composer and arranger. The music I chose for this episode is an original work "Mazurka" and one splendid arrangement--Suite Anglaise by Henry Purcell, arr. by Ronchini for cello and piano.  I invite you to look at the available merch at my Patreon and chose one of three levels that offers, beginning with, 1) a sticker; 2) a mug; 3) a shirt. https://www.patreon.com/travelingcello Or... make a one time donation through my paypal PayPal.me/travelingcello Find me on Social Media: https://www.instagram.com/travelingcello/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpWQ5BLhtXdyeJOlGJ8MyqQ Purchase one of my arrangements: https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/publishers/aaron-sinnett-sheet-music/3022778?_requestid=783941 Thanks so much for listening.

48. France in the 18th Century: from "The Violoncello and Its History" by Joseph Wasielewski
48. France in the 18th Century: from "The Violoncello and Its History" by Joseph Wasielewski
 France in the 18th Century: from "The Violoncello and Its History" by Joseph Wasielewski Section III. "A substantial hindrance existed from the circumstance that the method of violin playing,...had been in a measure used as a model without taking into consideration the important difference in the dimensions of the fingerboard in the two instruments." p104 ____________________ This marks the end of the Unit on The Violoncello in the 18th Century. It covered three countries to a fairly comprehensive degree and inserted a great many anecdotes about the cellists who cultivated the emergence of this amazing instrument. It is regrettable that there was apparently not enough information, or Wasielewski did not think it necessary, to include separate sections on other countries such as England or Russia, for example. While there are some references to cellists either moving to England or Russia there is hardly a whisper of any native cellists from those countries.  But it is an extremely fortunate occurrence that the author put down so much information about the cello and its progenitors at all! This book is packed with compositions mentioned and can be used as a database as such. Once your read this important book, you will also be privy to the vast numbers of cello compositions that are at our disposal, that is, now that we have the internet.  When I was a college student, this was hardly the case, even though the internet was already in quite a robust and useful position, I still had to go into various college libraries and spend hours sifting through the stacks just to find "new and interesting" works. This was pleasurable work, since I naturally like quiet spaces filled with books, but I would not have found any of the works by Nölck or Goltermann without visiting specific libraries in Europe.  I spread the contents of this book to help make more people aware of the music available to cellists.

46. The Violoncello and Its History, in the 18th Century: ITALY
Continuation... This episode picks up from the previous one, Ep. 45, The Introduction to the 18th C. from The Violoncello and Its History, by Joseph Wasielewski. (Although dated as far as writing style is concerned, it is an incredible source for anyone interesting in expanding their knowledge about cello history and getting to know more cello music. It is a well-written book and I recommend it to all.) ITALY is the country in question. With it come some interesting characters, including Gabrieli, Cervetto, one cellist named Ferrari, and of course Boccherini. We also hear about the introducing of Thumb Position into cello playing as well as what instrument Bach wrote his famous Six Suites for solo violoncello for. Please join in on the nearly hour long journey of the first unambiguous look at cello playing.  For those who would like to contribute to my project financially please click on either or both of the following links: PayPal.me/travelingcello https://www.patreon.com/travelingcello Give any amount for however long you wish. If you chose the subscription route via Patreon, you could be eligible to receive some great merch, i.e. a sticker, a mug, or a shirt. I hope you will look into the options!

44. Reading The Violoncello and Its History. - - 1. The Introduction: History of the Viola da gamba
44. Reading The Violoncello and Its History. - - 1. The Introduction: History of the Viola da gamba
This is the official first chapter in The Violoncello and Its History. It begins with the Introduction entitled: The History of the viola da gamba. This is a bit confusing when reading headings and titles out of context in a podcast player. So, I am sure to repeatedly insert the title of the book. Hopefully, anyone searching for Cello History will not mistakenly take this as the introduction to the history of the viola da gamba as a whole (that history would begin several hundred years earlier, perhaps in the 1400's. The end of the intro. chapter does begin to tell the early developments of the cello and who made it and the perfection of the form.  The Violoncello and Its History, by Joseph Wasielewski is seminal work for the cello's history. He collected story after story regarding and relating to the cello, piecing it together, and finally writing it down in genealogical form for our edification.  After this episode, the chapters will deal exclusively and in detail, with the cello and its proponents.  Here is the the Table of Contents in case you are itching to know the next portion in the sequence of this book.  CONTENTS. Introduction. HISTORY OF THE VIOLA DA GAMBA (Basso di Viola) 1 THE TRANSITION TO THE VIOLONCELLO 36 The Art of Violoncello Playing in the Eighteenth Century. I. ITALY 48 II. GERMANY 67 III.

43. A New PLAN: Into to Reading through "The Violoncello and Its History"
43. A New PLAN: Into to Reading through "The Violoncello and Its History"
So, to be honest (I didn't mention this in this introductory episode to my new plan) I had already recorded four chapters of The Violoncello and Its History some time ago. I did it thinking that I will be able to utilize clips from it. A secondary purpose has always been in the back of my mind.  That is, I would like to upload the entire book someday. That day has come. However, it won't be the whole thing in one episode--a 20 hour episode, anyone? I'll break up the book into the respective chapters--still very long episodes--and post those while I am preparing new Forgotten Cello Music pieces.  This episode gives you the purpose for the reading and uploading as well as the Prefaces: the author's and the translator's. I have also included the first page of the first chapter: Introduction: The History of the Viola da gamba. That should whet your whistle. So once you are finished here continue straight away to Episode 44. That will provide you with 43 pages and around 1 hour 30 minutes of densely packed information all having to do with the time right before the cello made its appearance.  If you are finding this a bit over the top, too full of mundane detail, be sure to take advantage of that speed dial in your podcast player. Crank it up to 1.25 or 1.50 times faster than normal. It is funny to listen to my voice and you still get the benefit of learning tons of great history. (And don't forget that you are helping my stats out a lot as well.) For all the people especially keen on knowing how the book is generally laid out, the TOC: CONTENTS. Introduction.

42. Grand Duo: A Compelling Melody
42. Grand Duo: A Compelling Melody
Georg Goltermann wrote two Grand Duos, opp.15 and 25. This episode features Op.15 in D minor. All three movements are presented and talked about. This is a long talk about why I feel that Goltermann's music is worth your time. The melody is well constructed, the harmony is more interesting. It speaks to me on a deeper level.  Goltermann's influence on my affinity to Forgotten Cello Music when I was still a young student. When I started learning his Concerto No. 4 in G major it left a mark on my memory. Then his Nocturnes and Sechs Tonbilder later on confirmed what I had always felt. That this was convincingly worthy of the studio where students could learn the art of structure and harmony on a smaller scale before being introduced to the "Greats".  This is my take on this music. My apologies for the rather bad playing, particularly of the Grand Duo. My cello has been suffering and is slowly being reduced to box of worthless junk. Hopefully, one day, it will return to the environment that it was created in, thus revitalizing its voice and character. Crossing my fingers and planning for that glorious day. And, remember that there is a question viewable on my channel only on Spotify! “Would you play this Grand Duo?” And...LEAVE me a MESSAGE at my podcast webpage hosted by Anchor.fm: https://anchor.fm/forgottencellomusic/episodes/41--A-Grand-Duo-by-Goltermann-e1hgsf8 Below, you will find all the links to make a donation, buy a cello arrangement, share my podcast with others, leave a message, read my blog.

41. A Grand Duo by Goltermann
41. A Grand Duo by Goltermann
Goltermann had a higher capacity for elevated composition than we think. Based on the one or two student works we learn one would never suspect that he was worth performing on the concert stage. But his two Grand Duos,  op. 15 in D minor featured here, are evidence that he had a mastery over composition and could write great music.  Please listen on Spotify as it is the only platform that you are able to answer any questions or polls I pose. They are external from the episode content but are visible once your click on the episode itself. If you are in Spotify, the question will be above the description.

40. Forgotten Cello Music France 18th Century--Summary
Joseph Wasielewski wrote an historically important and informative book all about the cello and its history. Already over 100 years has passed since its publication. Yet, it still remains one of the few books written in a comprehensive manner. This episode features the concluding pages, summing up the state of cello playing and composition at the close of the 18th Century, not only in France but in the main centers of cello development: Italy, Germany, and France. (Despite a good deal of information being written about England, there is no section dedicated to that country's contribution.)

38. Johann SCHETKY 12 Cello Duets: Great Music!
38. Johann SCHETKY 12 Cello Duets: Great Music!
Johann Schetky was a well-known and celebrated Cellist in his day, i.e. the 1700's. When he moved to Edinburgh, Scotland he was already a sought after musician and found employment in the North because of his acquaintance with J.C. Bach. He apparently liked the Capitol of Scotland enough to fall in love and settle there permanently.  Whether you are into details about individuals or history in general, you'll want to listen to Schetky's own preface to his Op. 7 Cello Duets. He is a straight talker that does not give a student any false sense of ease when it comes to perfecting the art of music. This is a document that sheds light onto the business of educating students in a broad sense.  You might like to see me in action in several of these Duets. I have recorded videos of the first three and uploaded them to my YouTube channel: Traveling Cello Send a tip: PayPal.me/travelingcello Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/travelingcello #cello #forgottencellomusic #johnanschetky #celloduet #18thcenturycelo #violoncelloanditshistory

37. The Violoncello in Germany: 18th Century Popular Instrument
This is Episode 37 and is again based on the great historical work by Joseph Wasielewski, The Violoncello and Its History.  It come from the Chapter titled The Art of Violoncello Playing in the 18th Century. This is the second section in that chapter: Germany. The Cello was gaining in popularity quickly in Germany. It soon found its place in the Orchestra and then as a solid solo instrument. However, the proponents of the instrument were still working out many of the technical issues that are different to the Viola da Gamba. In this episode, I explore the introduction of Cello in the German speaking countries and a handful of cellists who wrote works extensively for their instrument.  Solos, duets, and fugues feature by: Triemer, Schetky, Arnold, Uber, Baumgärtner, and even Duport. {Take time to answer the question associated with the episode.} Visit my Patreon to support this podcast. or send a tip to my paypal: PayPal.me/travelingcello I play all of the music you hear in the background.

35. Country Dances, Traditional Tunes in an Early Cello Treatise
35. Country Dances, Traditional Tunes in an Early Cello Treatise
Broderip and Wilkinson wrote a cello treatise in the late 1700's. They put many traditional tunes in there. A little searching and I dug up at least some of the sources for those tunes. I'd be honored for you to join me while I look into and play those tunes.  But it is Xmas season as well. So, I'll include some Xmas Carols. Think of it as busking out on the street, or the on the square of the social media gathering point.  Consider giving a TIP this Xmas to a Cellist who loves to play but hasn't played in public for almost three years. Thanks for taking the time to read this and listen to my podcast about Forgotten Cello Music. paypal.me/travelingcello Merry Christmaas!

34. Beethoven's MINUET--Finding Connections and Appreciation
34. Beethoven's MINUET--Finding Connections and Appreciation
This is episode 34. Beethoven wrote a little Minuet. It has been learned by children the world over and is played quite a lot. (Maybe not as much as Für Elise however.) Recently, a student surprised me with a performance of this  little dittie. I responded by arranging it for two cellos and subsequently recording it. After which the inspiration hit me. Playing only the solo and bass line of the piano accompaniment, seemed to me, to be a startling similarity between the Baroque music I have been playing recently. Not only that, but,  Beethoven did not write anything less than artistically and creatively of the highest quality. Come along and discover with me and find appreciation for this "annoying" Minuet that we learned as children and quite possibly disliked, at least, until now. :) If you are considering to support this podcast, visit my patreon and subscribe there. or You might prefer sending a tip to my PayPal.me/travelingcello Cello Students: Are you looking for a teacher with lots of experience? I have 20 years plus. It ranges from the traditional one on one to small groups in middle- and high school ensembles and even to leading out in sectionals for University orchestras. I began teaching online well before there was any hint of a global pandemic, and so have plenty of experience with a video chat style lesson as well.  Lessons are based on the traditional method, but over the years I have been working out how to mentor students into a natural way of playing so as to give good-sounding results early on. In just the past year alone I have brought three total beginners up to late-beginner/early-intermediate territory in ease of playing and learning music on their own. (While also recognizing their own diligent practice!)  I am quite proud of this fact since, for so many students (I am included in this group) starting to learn an instrument is unnatural, difficult, and almost a fearful type of "work". My aim has been to help students acquire tools so that practice at home continues what was learned during the lesson. As a private teacher, because there is generalIy only one HOUR per week together, I strive to guide my students into healthy, productive habits that last throughout their time alone with the Cello.

33. Episode 33 Early Cello Treatise and Cervetto's (Sr.) Easy Lessons
The Broderip & Wilkinson Cello Treatise, c. 1783, has lots of musical examples and some exercises by Giacobbe Basevi Cervetto (Sr.). In this episode I talk quite at length about some of the scales and arpeggios along with 10 Easy Lessons for First Practice by Mr. Cervetto.  To start the episode off, "Shifting". This is a curious topic in the treatise because it is dealt with in such broad terms. With any luck I will also have an accompanying video on FB and YT to demonstrate what I perceive is their intention.  By the way, if you would like to try out my merchandise (created at Patreon) clink on this link here: https://www.patreon.com/travelingcello?fan_landing=true Just go look at it first. How cool would it be to have listeners with Traveling Cello mugs or bags? I hope you like the episodes and find them informative, entertaining, or just enjoyable.

Episode 32: A Cello Treatise for Beginners--Cervetto
Broderips & Wilkinson's Complete Treatise for the Violoncello Historically speaking, this maybe not that significant. Certainly not ground-breaking, but it does seem to quite an early example in the history of the cello. It is interesting from the perspective of seeing and hearing how people approached the cello and learning it. We also have some pretty neat musical selections to boot.  Thanks for the increase in listeners. It's climbing little by little. Share your thoughts. After you look at the musical selections would you include some in your cello teaching? Regardless, they are food for thought and have some practical applications if you are looking to incorporate more period-style playing, namely, ornamentation, into your playing.

30. Episode 30 Cello in the 18th Century: ITALY
Cello in the Late 1600's was just beginning to find its place and garner more support, that is, more performers of the instrument. It seems to have really started taking off with Domenico Gabrielli, whose nic-name was...well, just listen to find out. All throughout the 1700's the dedication to expanding the literature was ever more apparent. Numberless cellists played and composed for their instrument. Even non-cellist composers contributed a significant body of works for this magnificent instrument. Marcello and Vivaldi to name just two. Please join me on my adventure through The Violoncello and Its History: 18th Century Italy.

This is a bit of an introduction to the 18th Century. The cello had gained its foothold and indeed became the preferred instrument to the viola da gamba. Bucket loads of music was being written all throughout the 1700's. This episode takes the "intro" of the 18th century section and uses it to paint the stage for what things more or less looked like in that era.  Enjoy some music from James Hook (intro music to the episode), G. Cervetto, A. Vivaldi, B. Marcello, and G. Sammartini.

28. Viola da Gamba: Precursor to the Violoncello Episode 28
The Violoncello and Its History by Joseph Wasielewski The introduction to this nearly 300 page book spans 40+ pages while setting the stage for the cello. In it, Wasielewski talks mostly about the instrument which arguably, the cello is loosely modeled after, that is, the Viola da Gamba. Although, not every piece I feature in this episode is forgotten (Marias' "Folia", Dowland's "Pavan", Corelli's "Giga"), the history leading up to the cello and the early portions of its history are easily passed over for more current, exciting, even tangible events.  This episode is rather a mish-mash of ideas, information, and opinions. I am not the best expresser of information nor do I communicate effectively or in interesting ways. Yet, this sort of research and production always holds a place of intrigue and special interest for me. It is likely that I will continue on with The Violoncello and Its History accompanied with recordings (mostly, at least) by neglected composers and forgotten works.  If there is any music you would enjoy hearing from the 18th Century send me a message and I'll see what I can do to bring that to fruition. :) To help me out without spending any extra money simply listen to all my episodes.

A SPECIAL performance (with brief introduction to the music): Friedrich Kummer Cello Duet No.1 in C major --all three movements Here is some music that might already be known in the cellist's world. Regardless of its status it still only gets played by students and then only occasionally. It falls in the category of "Forgotten Cello Music" to my mind. Moreover, it is a pleasant piece of music that could be used in quite a number of different scenarios. 1) Receptions, 2) Soirees, 3), special music in Church, 4) to impress your non-music friends, et al.

Episode 24: Advice to Young Musicians - 2 R. Schumann
Three quotes. My thoughts about the advice given, how it has been interpreted, and the negative impact those strict beliefs have had on the expansion of our musical experience. In this journey along the path of "Forgotten Cello Music" I want to get into some things that have had a lasting, bad impression on me since at least undergrad. I hope that it doesn't come across as a diatribe but rather my take on and attempting to understand the why's and wherefore's of the beliefs staunch adherents have had when adamantly objecting to any music they consider second-rate or worse. Come along with me. Send comments and join the conversation. Maybe you, too, wish to expand the experience we collectively have in Classical music. Maybe you also enjoy the "Great" music but at the same time grow a little weary and would like to branch out into some new, undiscovered world of music.  While I admire Schumann and his works, some of the points are somewhat startling and even off-putting. I attempt to work through the tough points and make sense of what he was getting at. Although I do not work through it in methodical detail, I do try to bring a broad sense of understanding and ideas to rectify the situation. blah blah blah listen in.

He immigrated to America in the late 1800's and wrote two collections of works for Easy Cello. Each of them contain many arrangements and Fantasias using American Melodies popular at that time.

Oscar Brückner (1857-1930) A short biographical sketch from "Cellists of the Present: In Word and Picture", Hamburg 1903. Hear about his life and appointments as cellist. He wrote a little bit of music. I've recorded Nocturne Op. 37 for Cello and Piano, and 20 Short Studies for Cello, Op. 30. The Nocturne is certainly worth the effort to learn. Charming and full of neat surprises. The Studies are worthy to be included in a student's satchel of Etudes.  Thanks for listening and for more information, more action, more "Forgotten Cello Music", check out other podcast episodes and my other Social Media as well.

In this episode, I mainly focus on the reading directly from Wasielewski's book: CONCLUSION pages 210-213. It is a good overview of the two centuries past and a look at the then current role of the solo cellist and some of the impediments they faced.  At the end, I make a few comments and mention plans for a future episode.  Thanks for listening.

He was even reputed to have written a cello concerto that was well-known on the concert stage. Although there is no music, that I know of (in the public domain, or otherwise) this cellist was a game-changing artist for cello technique and interpretation.

Episode 12: Forgotten Cello Music, Sebastian Lee Etude Composer
Episode 12: Forgotten Cello Music, Sebastian Lee Etude Composer
The German cellist Sebastian Lee was quite a prolific composer of etudes for the cello. He wrote for ALL levels of cello playing. First Steps in Violoncello Playing, Op. 101 are duets in which which the student part begins with open strings, progressing to the use of all 4 fingers on all strings, with varied bowings.  12 Etudes-caprices caractéristiques, Op. 100 are intermediate level caprices placed squarely from first to fourth position. Inventive and demanding for lower position music, yet musical and fun.

Episode 11: Forgotten Cello Music, Bernhard Cossmann, Violoncellisten der Gegenwart
This cellist may have been a busy composer, yet only his Technical Studies seem to be remembered and practiced. In it contains many exercises for finger agility, strengthening, accuracy, and speed. He was known to be a first-rate musician and played with the likes of Brahms, concertizing his whole life long.  To listen to the music you hear playing in the background go to my Youtube Channel and Facebook Page: 1.

Episode 10: Forgotten Cello Music from "The History of the Violoncello" a reading about J. Klengel
Episode 10: Forgotten Cello Music from "The History of the Violoncello" a reading about J. Klengel
Joseph Wasielewski's hugely important book about the history of the cello caught my attention in a search I did a while ago. There is a short entry about Julius Klengel. Upon reading I realized it was somewhat different to the short bio from "Violoncellisten der Gegenwart". It was worth my while and I think it will be interesting to you as well. Reading in the translation by Isobella Stigand some 120 years ago and the original German. To listen to the music you hear playing in the background go to my Youtube Channel and Facebook Page: 1.

Episode 4: Forgotten Cello Music, Georg Goltermann, Cellist, Composer, Performer, Teacher
The music of Goltermann's for cello encompasses quite a large quantity. He wrote works with 135 opus numbers and most of them are for cello. In this episode I talk in more detail about his Sonatinas, Nocturnes, Tonbilder, and a bit about the concertos. They are fabulous works. It is my hope that more cellists and students play his music.

Episode 2: Forgotten Cello Music -- Julius Klengel
How many composers are there? How many cellist/composers? More than you might think. Julius Klengel was was of many (especially during the Romantic Period) who performed, taught, and composed. He wrote dozens of pieces specially for cello and many of those were targeted at students.  It is worth our while to explore, discover, and learn old works that have been forgotten by most of the population of cellists.

Episode 1: Forgotten Cello Music -- "Violoncellisten der Gegenwart"
Hi listeners! Aaron here. What is it that you appreciate about this podcast? Write a short thought as a response to the question (on Spotify) or send me a Voice Message (at Anchor.fm). Your feedback is welcome and it'd be great to hear from you! Recently, the book, in German, "Violoncellisten der Gegewart: In Wort und Bild" came to my attention. I had been searching for books about cello and this is one of the great discoveries that popped up. The title can be translated to the effect, "Cellists of the Present: In Word and Picture". It is great to come across historical volumes such as this when involved in precisely this era. Currently, I am recording music from Julius Klengel and it happens that Klengel is one of the features therein. Great source material. I hope you will join me as I introduce the book about cellists from the turn of the 20th Century. Here, I also speak about the fact that there are many more pieces for cello than I had ever dreamt there were when I was a student in the 90's and 2000's. If you wish to be a proponent of spreading the word about all this cello music and help more people to hear more selections of "Forgotten Cello Music" consider donating to this cause.

ii. "Forgotten Cello Music": A Closer look at the Purpose
ii. "Forgotten Cello Music": A Closer look at the Purpose
Introduction Take a closer look with me at why I am searching out Forgotten Cello Music and recording it.  When I was a student, I remember hearing complaints that there was very little for cellists to play. That simply isn't true. We would have had a difficult time proving that in the early 2000's without the aid of open-source Wiki's like IMSLP. Now we know that there are many thousands of pieces originally composed for cello, and many of those by cellists.  This longer introduction of my podcast "Forgotten Cello Music" tells why I want to do this project, and what music I am looking at to learn and record.

i. Short Intro to Forgotten Cello Music--Goltermann, Klengel, Nölck, Lee, and more
My first podcast, EVER! Thanks to the platform for the chance to produce and upload my own podcast, free of charge. Let's learn about "Forgotten Cello Music". This is a project I began many years ago when I was a student. Sight-reading was always very interesting to me and the more I sight-read the more music I needed to get my hands on. Soon, I began discovering and reading works by composers I knew little about and even by some I never had heard of. Now, I am going about it via IMSLP and dowloading lots of scores by Goltermann, Klengel, Nölck, Schlemüller, Lee, Dotzauer, Kummer, Romberg, Hegner, and sometimes neglected music by well-known composers.  My goal is really simple--PLAY MORE FORGOTTEN CELLO MUSIC. That's it. I have only one basic rule. --> Play an ENTIRE opus number. I will never choose one number from an opus, rather I will learn all 6 of the "Tonbilder" Op. 129 by Goltermann, or all 3 Sonatinas Op. 47 (and each movement, of course) by Klengel. Just to name two. Although I have a deep appreciation for the great music by those great composers--Bach, Beethoven, Haydn, etc.--these forgotten pieces of music are interesting and fun to play. Many of them lie in the Beginner to Intermediate levels. This doesn't reduce their intrigue to me. It does open of more possibilities for teaching material however!  There is so much music out there, perhaps you, too, would find some neglected music that holds your interest. Just give a chance by playing it more than once or twice. It may turn out to be very interesting music.
